  1. I have a text frame that needs to change shape, from narrow to wide column. I can change the shape, but have to manually remove line endings. I'm sure this is not intended in a professional product. As a work-around, I copy the text into Notepad, clean up the words that are now not separated by a space and the line endings that are not where they are needed. Presumably, this is a buy you will fix!
  2. I am not sure, but I believe, that fit-to-text-frame worked in previous versions. Double clicking the lower centre resize handle should fit the frame to text, but this will now give me the red overflow indicator. I tried this various fonts (Milo OT, Adobe Caslon Pro, Arial) with the same result. See attached image. There is always 0,1 - 0,2 mm missing in height.
  3. Hey! I have encountered a problem with shapes that became text frames. Steps: I draw a shape, in my case a circle. I color and adjust the circle's fill and stroke. I use the text frame tool to make it into a text frame. From this point on I can only access the font color. The circle's color and stroke is not editable anymore. I have attached a sample file too. Is this a normal behavior? All the best, Chris text.afdesign
  4. I have a large document. I was trying to find a way to add an accented "e" to a word so I used the Text/Show Special Characters menu choice. Wrong! At that point all text objects in the entire document were highlighted with rectangles around them. Apparently, even picture frames are also highlighted. Undo didn't work. I went back to the same "Text/Show Special Characters" menu and unchecked that. I can't get rid of the rectangles now. "Select All" doesn't change anything as all objects are selected. "Deselect" is greyed out and Command-D does not function in this case, and the "Text/Show Special Characters" is not checked. Note that the purpose of "Show Special Characters" turned itself off (not showing paragraph markers, etc.), but the highlighted rectangles are still present. Any ideas? Is this a bug or there some way to "deselect" everything? Thanks.
  5. I use a lot of text captions next to photos. These look much better when centered on the photo's frame (left, right, bottom, top). Also using centre for the alignment in the text. Sometimes, the text frame needs to be narrowed/widened in order for the text flow to look better (so, for example, you do not end up with a single word on the last line of the caption). I struggle to manually keep the text frame centered while narrowing/widening the text frame. It would be very helpful to have a "modifier" key that will freeze the center of the text frame and as you narrow/widen one side, the other side would also narrow - keeping the text frame centered on another object. This seems to me similar to locking the aspect ratio on picture frames by using the Shift key as you drag a frame handle. This would also apply to making the text frame taller or shorter for the same reasoning. This would save a huge amount of time in that 1.) the frame needs only to be narrowed, and 2. extra time is now spent also re-centering the frame since, now, only one side moves and it ends up non-centered. If there is such a method to do this, it escapes me at this time. Thanks.
  6. I can't find anything in the Help about this but it seems like a reasonable thing to want to do. It would be nice to be able to easily convert an artistic text layer to a text frame so I can take advantage of the extra functionality without having to manually create new text frames and copying the text over. Is there any way of doing this easily? On example where this would be useful is if you had a page originally created in Designer - which doesn't have text frames - that you brought over to Publisher for further editing.
  7. Hello there! I am currently trying to resize an existing artboard to an exact value using the transform panel, however I can't get the textframes to scale with the artboard, rather than just changing the frame size. When I use the "scale handle" and "manually" resize the artboard, it works just fine. How would I go about doing it with the transform panel? I have this question also over on stackexchange: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/120555/affinity-designer-how-do-i-make-textframes-scale-with-the-artboard-if-i-scale-b Also attached you should find a gif demonstrating the issue I am facing.
  8. This is weird. Did not test out at other places where the slider is used for the width of a stroke. Look at the video and try yourself if you are able to move the slider to value 0. After all the value IS 0, but this is irritating. textframe-stroke.mp4
  9. Publishing is new to me. I can't believe that I can't get started! Page 1, text frame, style heading 1, start typing - NOTHING. I'm not using layers that I am aware of. I know this is not right! Put me on the right start path PLEASE! Humbly thankful. Jeri
  10. I just started using Affinity Publisher Beta so forgive my ignorance. When I add a text frame, I cannot find where I can make the background of the frame transparent. The background of the frame has a brown color. Thanks in advance.
  11. I would like to suggest that the facility to fit text to a frame should be added to the context menu of Text Frames. The "Size Text" option in PagePlus X9 (see attachment) is a good illustration of what I am looking for. The same option can be found in InDesign and Quark. FitText.pdf
  12. Bonjour ! In a text frame, I want to insert a picture in a paragraph and get this picture moving with the paragraph when I insert or delete news lines of text above. like "move objet with text" in Word... How can I do ? Dans un bloc de texte, je voudrais insérer une image entre deux paragraphes. Je voudrais que cette image se déplace en même temps que le paragraphe, si j'ajoute ou supprime des lignes. Comment faire ? Merci very much...
  13. How do you manage linked text frames? For example, unlink text frames or move a link from one frame to another?
  14. I'm not sure if this is a bug or just an unexpected behavior. What I expect: When I click or double click into an existing text frame I expect the text frame size to remain unchanged and for the pointer to automatically change from whatever tool I happen to be using to the text insertion tool, at the point where I've clicked, so that I may change or add text. What happens: When I click or double click into an existing text frame the text frame size collapses to tightly fit the existing text and the text insertion tool does not activate. Why it matters: This means that my layout is negatively affected because the text frame should not change and it stops my workflow because I do not get the proper text tool.
  15. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.206. When editing a text frame and selecting a style - either character or paragraph - from the context bar, the list of styles doesn't disappear. Even double-clicking doesn't make it go away, sometimes I have to treble-click or more, which sometimes causes problems if the pointer is over something I didn't want to click on (e.g. the ruler). Every now and again the list will disappear after selection but this is very rare and makes the UI inconsistent as I don't know what it will do at any given time.
  16. I was disappointed when the master pages couldn't have frames which needed to be filled, though I understand the reasoning. I'm wondering if there is a way to create a library of frames so I can pop a text frame in place and not have to find an earlier use to make sure the alignment and size are correct. This would at least give me a starting point anchored in the right spot.
  17. Is it the desired and expected behavior? I have two unlinked text frames. At first, the effect is applied using the Transparency Tool, on the second using the Fill Tool/Gradient. If I link these two frames, the transparency will be transferred to the second frame, and his gradient will be lost. This is true even if the first is filled with a gradient, and a second transparency. Second question - is possible unlink linked text frame?
  18. [AD 1.7.0.184 beta Windows] How can I select and change the attributes (color, conture) of the object "frame text"? (I mean not the text in the frame)? My text frame has a fine gray frame. How can I make this frame invisible? Greetings from Frankfurt Pinnochio
  19. I think there's a bug in the flowing of text from one frame to another. I attach a test file to demonstrate this. 1. Click inside the 3-column text frame. 2. Click on the little (it could usefully be bigger) orangey-red triangle on the frame's right-hand edge. The "new text frame" cursor appears (T in a box). 3. Attempt to drag a new text frame. If it works, move to the new text frame, click inside that, and keep repeating steps 2 and 3. 4. For me, this will sooner or later cause Publisher to crash. Sometimes it happens on the first "flow out" attempt; sometimes only after 2 or 3 or 4 "flow outs" have been completed.

  20. I was working today on Publisher and created a custom text frame for my text. When the frame is deselected I can see a very thin white-ish line where it was. It remained there when I exported it as a pdf. I tried creating a test custom frame on another page and it did the same thing. Please see the screen shot. The text frame does NOT show on regular, rectangular text boxes; that is working fine. Am I missing something? Or is this a bug. I've been looking for the text frame border options and I either made the stroke transparent or the same color as the background, but it turns out I was working with the text itself.

  21. Hello, When I drawn a text frame and resize it with it's content (for exemple I pass from 18pt to 24pt), the links text frame will used the 18pt text size. David
  22. Sir, I am trying to do a simple thing with 1.7.0.133 - create a new document - draw a text frame - Insert text from a RTF file. The results are strange: Only a part of the text is pasted into the frame, altough the frame is much larger than the text. There are two red triangles (impossible to find their meaning or behaviour in the help files). The text is cut more or less at the level of the left triangle. The lower triangle is associated with an "eye". If you click on the eye, the rest of the text shows up below the frame. (initially hidden). If you click again the text below the frame disappears.Click again, back, etc Questions: - is there a simple way to get a complete paste in one go ? - what is the meaning/behaviour of the triangles ? Please advise Regards, Philippe -
  23. In Indesign there is an easy to find option to set marinas within a text frame Publisher help refers to a text frame panel, but thus far I cannot find it, so am unable to set mm margins between frame and text.
  24. Help > Text > Text frames > Fitting text to frames > To fit frame to frame text… The user-guide describes double-clicking the edge handle at the bottom centre of the text frame to fit the frame to the frame text. This works great for a single frame with multiple columns where the inset is set to 0mm. See the first image below. However, if you change the inset to, say, 2mm and then double-click the edge handle as described above, then the fitting fails: see the second image below. The expected behaviour would be the same as in the first example, but with the inset around it. NB These two illustrations use a Column Break, which is placed after the last word in the first column, to force the text into the second column. There is no overflow text in this example.
  25. Hi, I am not even sure if this is a bug or not: when trying to create text in a box, the Frame Text Tool allows to convert a rectangular shape into a text frame (see pasted image). Once this has been done, its impossible to make any changes on the color of the rectangle ("the background"). It is however still possible to control other features such as the curvature of the edges. I checked the Designer and its the same behaviour there, so I guess its intentionally like this?!? If there is a way to still manipulate the box but not the text, its not very intuitive (at least to me). v. 1.7.0.58 Thanks for the great beta!
